Additional information

Features and applications

GN 346 thrust pads are normally used to transmit clamping forces. Thanks to the ball joint, they can be adapted on irregular or non-parallel surfaces and prevent the rotating movement of the screw from being exerted directly on the piece to be locked.


Zinc-plated steel, class 5.8 (tensile strength 500 N/mm²).

Technical data

The values of max limit static load shown in the table were obtained through a series of laboratory tests with vertical static load.
